AbstractThe thesis accompanies a series of poems ‘1-50’. Throughout the research an investigatory methodology is used. It is a study of my practice as an innovative writer. There is an analysis of the techniques and methodology used when I write poems. The thesis is structured into three areas. The first area examines why the work I produce is influenced by middle class white men. In order to understand the connection, my poems will be compared to the work of my peers. The second stage probes the relationship that women and men have with language. It examines the acquisition of language by women and men in a patriarchal society. These questions have been debated since the second wave of feminism, the thesis will explore if the notion is still relevant today. The final section questions why there is a lack of black linguistically innovative poets writing in the UK. The research starts with the post colonial poets and explores the use of patois and Creole in poetry.
